The Technique 

Chocolate-Cinnamon Babka

Chocolate-Cinnamon Babka features the familiar flavors found in Classic Cinnamon Babka but with the addition of a lovely spice scented Chocolate-Cinnamon Paste designed to flavor the dough throughout. A rich blend enhanced with eggs, butter & buttermilk produces a tender crumb while the simple spice scented glaze adds a lovely sheen & exceptional good taste to them once baked. Rolling the dough & cutting it in a similar fashion to cinnamon rolls then placing it in standard muffin tins makes it straightforward to prepare. Freezing the dough briefly before slicing it is a crucial step to achieve beautiful spirals. Learn how to handcraft this traditional sweet bread in your very own kitchen.

makes 2 dozen 

The recipe yields approximately 36-ounces of dough. 

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup warm water {105 to 110 degrees} 
1 {1/4-oz} package active dry yeast
1/2 cup sugar, divided
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour 
1 1/4 cups bread flour
2 tsp kosher salt
1 cup room temperature whole buttermilk
1 egg, lightly beaten
Chocolate-Cinnamon Paste
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon 

Microwave 1/4 cup butter on High power 20 seconds or until melted. Cool 10 minutes. Meanwhile, stir together the water, the yeast & 1 teaspoon sugar. Let stand 5 minutes or until foamy. Whisk together the remaining sugar, the all purpose flour, the bread flour & the salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the butter, the buttermilk, the egg & the yeast mixture. Mix on Low speed 1 minute with a dough hook. The dough will come together in a ball around the hook. Increase the speed to Medium. Blend 5 minutes. Shape the dough into a ball & place in a lightly greased bowl. Spray the dough surface with cooking spray & cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Let rise in a draft-free spot for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until doubled in bulk. 

Prepare the Chocolate-Cinnamon Paste as directed. Set aside. Press the dough down & divide it in half. Cover one portion of the dough. Roll the remaining dough portion to a 16 x 12-inch rectangle. Spread half of the chocolate mixture over the dough surface to within 1/2-inch of the edge. Roll the dough lengthwise jelly roll fashion. Carefully transfer the filled dough to a parchment paper-lined sheet pan & straighten the log. Loosely cover & freeze 20 minutes. Meanwhile, repeat the procedure with the remaining dough & chocolate mixture. If the chocolate mixture becomes too cool, warm in the microwave for 5 seconds to slightly soften. Using a sharp chef knife, slice the first dough log crosswise down the center; cut each portion into 6 pieces. Place the pieces into a well greased standard 12-cup muffin tin. Cover loosely with plastic wrap. Repeat with the remaining dough portion. Let rise in a draft free spot 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until an increase by a half their original size has been achieved. The dough will rise outwards filling the cavities as opposed to upwards.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake 20 to 22 minutes, turning the pans halfway through the bake time. Meanwhile, combine 1/4 cup granulated sugar, 1/4 cup water & 1/4 tsp cinnamon in a small saucepan. Cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat. Pour & brush the warm syrup over the chocolate babka in the tins. Allow to stand 5 minutes. Remove from pans & place on a wire rack. Cool completely.

How To Make Chocolate-Cinnamon Babka

Yeast doughs aren’t difficult to prepare from scratch but there are techniques you should be familiar with in order to make a successful batch. It does take patience to work with yeast as it needs adequate time to produce quality results. It is the Chocolate-Cinnamon Paste that sets this particular recipe apart from traditional babka. It may be prepared quickly in the microwave just before the second shaping.

 Read through the recipe before beginning. Gather the tools & equipment that will be necessary in order to complete the tasks. Here’s what you should know.

The Ingredients

The Yeast

Dry active yeast can be purchased in 1/4-ounce packets or in small jars. I use both when preparing bread recipes, generally based on what my store has in stock at the time. If purchasing a jar of yeast, store it in the refrigerator after opening. Just be mindful of the expiration date so you don’t find yourself in a jam. You’ll find that 2 1/4 teaspoons is the equivalent to 1 envelope of active dry yeast. 

The Proofing

It’s a good idea to dissolve dry yeast before using. Simply stir it into warm water with a little of the sugar & allow it to stand several minutes. Yeast feeds on sugar for fuel. If no bubbles are created during the proofing process, the yeast will not be able to do its’ job. Simply discard the batch & start again. At this point, you’ll only be five minutes into the procedure so don’t get discouraged.

Bread flour has more protein than all purpose flour. It provides dough strength & structure. The development of gluten is key in order to build the foundation of a quality bread loaf. This particular formula uses a combination of both which results in a lovely texture. Salt gives dough flavor. Without out it, expect a flat taste. However, salt can kill yeast so it should be evenly dispersed into the flour before the yeast mixture is added.

The Mixing

You’re now ready to add the ingredients that will enrich the dough as well as the yeast mixture. Place them into the work bowl, attach the dough hook & blend the ingredients as directed in the recipe. A heavy duty stand mixer fit with a dough hook is a bread makers friend. It will take care of all of the muscle work when it comes to kneading the dough. Bread doughs will give your mixer a good workout. Don’t leave it unattended as it will rock & shake a bit as the dough mixes.

The Mixing

Microwave 1/4 cup cold butter in a glass bowl on High power 20 seconds or until melted. Cool 10 minutes. Meanwhile, stir together the water, the yeast & 1 teaspoon sugar. Let stand 5 minutes or until foamy. Whisk together the remaining sugar, the all purpose flour, the bread flour & the salt in the bowl of a stand mixer.

Mix on Low speed 1 minute with a dough hook. The dough will come together in a ball around the hook.

Increase the speed to Medium. Blend 5 minutes. Expect a very soft dough that clings to the bowl sides. When the dough is ready to be removed from the mixing bowl, push it away from the hook with well floured hands.

The Work Bowl Removal

This dough is particularly sticky, so sprinkle a bit of flour around the edges & over the dough into the work bowl. Shimmy some between the sides & the dough using a rubber spatula or a plastic dough scraper.

Allow it to tumble out onto a lightly floured surface. Expect a soft, supple mixture not a stiff ball of dough.

Sprinkle a bit of additional flour over the surface.

The First Shaping

Press the dough into a flat circle using your hands. The imprints in the dough are from my fingertips indicating the dough texture.

Shape the dough into a ball by gathering the outside of the dough & pressing it into the center around the entire circumference until it all meets evenly in the middle.

Flip the dough over. A few quick spins between your hands will have it shaped into a ball. The dough is now ready to be placed into a large, lightly greased bowl.

The First Rise

Allow the dough to rest & rise. Place the smooth surface in a lightly greased bowl & flip it over so that the greased side faces upwards. This will prevent any unwanted sticking. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap & place it in an area in your kitchen free from drafts.

Allow the dough to double in bulk. This can take anywhere from 1 to 1 1/2 hours depending on the temperature of your kitchen. If it’s slow going, turn on your oven & place the bowl of dough beside it to speed along the process.

The Portioning & The Second Shaping

Before removing the dough from the bowl, it’s a good idea to prepare the filling & pans. Microwave the chocolate & the butter in a medium glass bowl on High power 30 seconds. Stir the mixture. Cook an additional 15 to 30 seconds. Stir until melted & smooth. Whisk in the powdered sugar, the cocoa powder, the cinnamon & the salt. Cool 10 minutes before using. Lightly grease two standard-size muffin tins.

Gently slide the dough onto a lightly floured work surface & press it flat to push the air bubbles out. Use a bench scraper to divide it into two pieces.
